Royal Panda Review

8.8 / 10
Thanks to a friendly, easy to use site and a huge library chock full of NetEnt and Microgaming titles, Microgaming has built a great name for itself over the last ten years. Support isn't quite on par with other casino sites, but a solid welcome bonus and plenty of payment options means that we're willing to (at least some to some extent) forgive that for the purposes of our Royal Panda casino review.

Royal Panda Review Summary

On the scene for over a decade, there's plenty to like about Royal Panda. Casino review sites like ours are always keen to look at how many games sites offer, and Royal Panda's is pretty much unrivalled, thanks to their use of multiple software providers.

Plus, the site itself feels very modern and easy to use. You'll find much more detail below in our Royal Panda online casino review below, but overall we have to say that we've been very impressed by Royal Panda.

Software and Playability 9 /10

The use of two major casino software providers means that the experience at Royal Panda is seriously comprehensive and seriously smooth too.

Royal Panda has games to enjoy from both NetEnt's and Microgaming's libraries, which gives it a serious leg up over many of its competitors. The playing experience itself is smooth and, as far as we can tell, very much bug-free as well.

It's easy to pass a little time here thanks to the site's "instant play only" approach, which means that users get access to hundreds of games on laptop, desktop, iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy or pretty much any other device without having to download a thing.

Banking Options 8.5 /10

Royal Panda clearly understands the needs of its players, offering a range of different deposit and withdrawal options that are popular all over the world.

With its enormous selection of supported deposit options – everything from Trustly and toditoCa$h to Skrill and Neteller – you would think that this section of our Royal Panda casino review would be absolutely glowing.

Unfortunately, we can't give it a perfect score because the range of withdrawal methods isn't quite so hefty:

1-2 days Payout speed
3-5 days Payout speed
1-3 days Payout speed
2-5 days Payout speed
1-4 days Payout speed
1-2 days Payout speed
1-5 days Payout speed
3-5 days Payout speed
2-3 days Payout speed

Most sites build in a bit of leeway for withdrawals made using Skrill and Neteller so, while the site officially lists them as instant, we would allow for a couple of days for the transaction to come through.

Security and Fair Play 9 /10

It's a minor complaint, but we'd like to see some more information about Royal Panda's audits, payout percentages and Random Number Generators.

Still, the fact that the site is licensed by two separate gaming authorities means it's very unlikely that there's anything to worry about when you play at Royal Panda. Plus the site has been going for 10 years without any serious issues relating to security or fairness arising in that time.

Of course, the site also encrypts data transfers and financial transactions – par for the course, but something that's always encouraging to see when you're looking at the safety features of something like the Royal Panda casino app.

Licensed and Regulated
Has a license from the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission.
Independently Audited
No mention on their site of any independent audits to date.
Verified Secure
The site is secured and verified on important pages by Comodo.

Casino Games 9 /10

2 major software providers and 500+ games = countless hours of fun every time you visit Royal Panda.

Most sites are content to stick with a single casino software provider, but Royal Panda's use of multiple providers (primarily NetEnt and Microgaming) means that they're not only able to offer a huge range of slots, but cherry pick the best table games, video poker titles and so on too.

The result is an "instant play only" experience that feels incredibly comprehensive and looks great, as well as a site where you'll almost certainly find at least some of your favorite titles, not to mention a bundle of new ones to try too.

Compatibility 9.5 /10

Royal Panda's completely instant play user interface means that you can sample their games whether you're on a PC, Mac, Surface Pro, iPhone, Windows Phone or Android device.

While instant play, or Flash, casinos were once seen by some as the poor man's alternative to downloadable casino clients we're seeing more and more sites using solely this model in 2017.

Knowing that you can get access to ALL of Royal Panda's great games, whatever type of computer you use, is fantastic and the large range of slots available on smartphone and tablet means that any Royal Panda mobile review has to be overwhelmingly positive as well.

Available Platforms

Bonuses and Promotions 8 /10

In a world of complex multi-stage bonuses, customers may be very glad of Royal Panda's simple and straightforward approach.

When you join Royal Panda, they double your deposit (up to a maximum of $100) and give you 10 free spins on Starburst. This isn't quite as lucrative as some welcome bonuses out there but, with comparatively low wagering requirements of 35x the value of the bonus, it's still a very attractive offer.

Plus there are other regular bonuses (like a 50% Bamboo Bonus on Fridays) and other seasonal promotions/giveaways – we're sure we'll be seeing many of these in 2017 and beyond – to enjoy when you play.

Customer Support 8 /10

Live chat at Royal Panda is available via telephone, live chat and email. So why the slightly lower than expected ranking?

Unfortunately, Royal Panda doesn't offer 24 hour support with customer service opening hours running from 9am to 12.30am in the GMT+1 time zone. If you happen to be a night owl, or live in an area that's several hours behind/ahead of GMT, you could find yourself waiting for (if you're really unlucky!) up to nine hours for the support team to log back in.

No doubt this puts a bit of a dent in our Royal Panda online casino review. But we have to tell it like it is, as there are so many casino sites out there that do offer support 24/7, 365 days a year.

Conclusion

With the help of a couple of major software providers, giving users access to literally hundreds of slots, they've made something very special over at Royal Panda. Review sites like ours are notoriously picky about casino sites, and this one really does set itself apart with the slots it offers. Throw a decent welcome bonus, live dealer games and a simple, but quirky, site into the mix and you can see why they're onto a winner.
